Since both of our birthdays are back-to-back - his on October 26, mine on the 27th, we celebrate them together and this year, all of our children came home to celebrate with us.
Although people were in and out for much of the month, because of schedules, there was only one full day when all of us were in the same place at the same time. Despite the lack of time, Jenny, Amber, Timmy and Toby somehow managed to take a series of very specific pictures that they put together in an album.

They weren't any old pictures. They were pictures that matched ones taken years before when they were little kids still living at home with us. They assembled the photos side-by-side in an album. Such fun and creativity! Thank you Jenny for making it happen and Amber, Toby, and Timmy for taking part. I love it!

When we were all at the beach the other day, I couldn't understand why Toby was sitting there making such a big pile of sand. I get it now!
|Timmy - 29 years later he's still wearing his own handmade necklaces and hanging out in the water whenever he can|

Once a gardener, always a gardener!
